Alan Jackson’s 20-year-old daughter has been arrested in Nashville, Tennessee for allegedly striking out at a police officer who caught her drinking alcohol.

Alexandra Jane Jackson was arrested on Tuesday night after the officer pulled over a car she was a passenger in and determined she was too young to be consuming alcohol.

Jackson’s furious daughter stepped out of the car and reportedly hit the cop when he asked her to return to her seat, and then resisted his attempts to put her in his patrol car.

According to CountryWeekly.com, she later admitted to consuming three drinks and was charged with underage drinking, assaulting an officer and resisting arrest. She was released on $35,000 bail and a court date for 23 September was set.

It’s not the Jackson family‚Äôs first brush with Nashville law enforcement – Alexandra’s older sister Mattie was arrested and charged with driving under the influence a year ago.
